    Thanks Moose.

    Check this - only two N scale oil storage tanks from Walthers cost $28! According to those prices I have just printed $140 worth of models! :eek:

    Got carried away on the 3D printer and did some oil storage tanks - four small and one large. Might do a little facility where you see them in the picture, with fencing and lighting. I already...

    I think they are all for other scales than N. I'm just saying it has been done, and if you can find the actual .stl file for a template for ANY scale it's a very simple matter to re-size the .stl...

    Examine the two pics. All of the red attachments were "improvements" that were printed on the printer, from the many free files you can get on Thingaverse -

    Is RailKing50 going to buy a 3D printer?

    The 0.2 mm nozzles arrived in the mail. Check out the pic. Believe it or not - there is a hole in the left nozzle - its really tiny.

    This should be entertaining. Get your popcorn ready. :scared:
